Q: Car window won't roll up

asked by on

The passenger's side window won't come up.

Hi there. A window that will not roll up is usually caused by a bad regulator or motor, however, this could also be an electrical problem, such as a failed switch, or bad wiring. As these things often require disassembling the door, I would recommend having the vehicle’s electrical components diagnosed by a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, to determine the exact cause of the problem.
